Here is a brief Bio for my song "Just War"
The point of the song is to protest the use of unmanned drones. It is not a general anti war protest.
Currently, President Obama is the sole decision maker on when drones are used. Recently he authorized a drone strike on an American citizen who was suspected of working with our enemies.
There is no transparency to how these decisions are made, we simply have to trust that he is making the right decision.
To justify his decision to use drones he has claimed that he has studied the teachings of the Catholic Church fathers such as St. Augustine and Thomas Aquinas and their concepts of what constitutes "just" war. Hence the title of my song.
Recently he signed a bill that authorized the FAA to work out how drones can be integrated into the domestic airspace for use by law enforcement. so it may not be too long until we have drones flying around watching what we are doing just like in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
